Should I Be So Weak and Sleepy with CKD Stage 4

2015-06-13 03:50

Should I Be So Weak and Sleepy with CKD Stage 4“I have CKD stage 4 and GFR 26. Should I be so weak and sleepy?” This is a common complaint of patients with CKD stage 4. In the following, let’s have a look together.

Why you feel weak and sleepy with CKD stage 4?

-The damaged kidneys can not make enough erythropoietin to make red blood cells. And the accumulated waste products shorten the lifespan of red blood cells. Therefore, there are not enough red blood cells to transport oxygen to muscles. And then you feel weak.

-Patients with CKD stage 4 need to follow a restricted diet. If you can not deal with it well, it is likely for you to suffer from nutrient deficiency, such as sodium deficiency, which may make you feel weak.

-Having a good rest is good for your recovery, but it does not mean you should avoid exercises. Long-term inactivity shrinks your muscles so as to make you weak.

When you feel weak, it is likely for you to suffer from sleepiness.

How to improve weakness and sleepiness for patients with CKD stage 4?

First, you should find out the underlying cause of your weakness and sleepiness. And then take corresponding measures, such as improve anemia, follow a renal-friendly diet, do some gentle exercise, etc.

But the fundamental way is to improve kidney function. 4M treatment (Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture and various Medicinal Soup) can regulate the blood environment which is suitable for the damaged kidneys to repair themselves. And it can also provide the essential nutrients, such as vitamins and amino acids for the damaged kidneys to speed up recovery. With the improvement of kidney function, you will become energetic.

Should I be so weak and sleepy with CKD stage 4? Both weakness and sleepiness are infections of kidney disease. If you want to improve them, you should repair the damaged kidneys and promote kidney function. For more information, please leave a message below or send emails to kidneycares@hotmail.com.
